'It's beginning to look as though greatness has been thrust upon Philip K. Dick ... [He] has chosen to handle material too nutty to accept, too admonitory to forget and too haunting to abandon' Washington Post 'In all his work he was astonishingly intimate, self-exposed, and very dangerous. He was the funniest sf writer of his time, and perhaps the most terrifying' The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction 'Dick quietly produced serious fiction in a popular form and there can be no greater praise' Michael Moorcock Philip K. Dick has been introduced to a huge market through the movies Blade Runner, Minority Report and A Scanner Darkly 'Dick's plastic realities tell us more than we'll ever want to know about the inside of our heads and the view looking out. In his tortured topographies of worlds never made, we see mindscapes that we ourselves, in our madder moments have glimpsed and thought real' James Lovegrove 'One of the most original practioners writing any kind of fiction, Dick made most of the European avant-garde seem like navel-gazers in a cul-de-sac' Sunday Times
Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was born in Chicago but lived in California for most of his life. He went to college at Berkeley for a year, ran a record store and had his own classical-music show on a local radio station. He published his first short story, 'Beyond Lies the Wub' in 1952. Among his many fine novels are The Man in the High Castle, Time Out of Joint, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and Flow My Tears, the Policeman Said.
